Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Roads, Maritime and Transport Kevin Anderson has welcomed the opening of nominations for the biennial Maritime Medal, recognising the outstanding and sustained contributions of individuals and organisations to the boating and maritime community of New South Wales.


The prestigious Maritime Medal was first awarded in 2006 and is about celebrating and acknowledging the passionate work of people in the boating and maritime community.


“While the bulk of us practice safe boating all the time there are many people in the community that often go above and beyond,” Mr Anderson said


“We want to find these people and recognise that commitment and contribution – whether it’s a safety measure, an innovative solution to aid boating safety or outstanding contribution to the community, now is the time to put those nominations in.


“The Maritime Medal judging panel looks forward to reviewing the nominations.”


Nominations and application criteria for this year’s Maritime Medal can be found online at:


Nominations for the Maritime Medal close on 30 June 2017.


Finalists in the nomination process will be invited to attend a special breakfast ceremony at this year’s Sydney International Boat Show on Friday 4 August 2017 when the medalists will be announced.
